Have you just been diagnosed?

Although we know sun and UV light exposure has been associated with melanoma, we do not know the exact cause. It is associated more with unaccustomed severe sun exposure rather than long term chronic everyday exposure. It also can occur in areas of the body that do not get the most sun. Other unexplained factors must also exist that contribute to melanoma, but sun exposure is the one thing we can change.
